“Great Exhibits”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is the place to visit for inspiration. Breezy exhibits with interactive elements make it really fun. You get a good feel for what skills are needed for innovation. The wing on Seattle history is accessible and fluid. Very enjoyable.

“My Favorite Museum”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

The exhibits are so intuitive and interactive! They had tons of history and I was super excited for the World's Fair portion. They had tons of history and I learned more about Seattle/Washington here than anywhere. It was definitely worth our walk and time. We just went here to kill time and it turned out to be amazing.

“If you love museums….”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

The Skinny:

Parking- $5 lot nearby
Tickets- $17 pp
Time- 2-3 hrs easy
Also- Cafe and tiny gift shop

If you love museums, you will love this one. They really have it laid out well and the exhibits are interesting and interactive. The top floor has great views of Lake Union and a periscope to check out the sea planes taking off. The floor below has a rotating exhibit and we missed the chocolate exhibit by 2 days!! The main exhibit is chock full of info on and about the Pacific Northwest. Really enjoyable.

“Unexpected is often the best”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Watch out the duck poop in the park! Trust me, those mines are more dangerous than you think. But everything in the museum just make you want to stay there forever. The contents are great for mindful people that are looking for interesting facts or historical lesson. So basically the museum itself is a live version of Buzzfeed interesting facts page

“Good for history of Seattle”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This is a great Seattle city museum. Wheel done with great artifacts and entertainment value. Good for kids! I particularly liked the Seattle fire "opera" as well as the Microsoft exhibit.
